The following fees are for 2016-2017 academic year only, payable when you enrol. You should pay prior to the start of the course. All additional costs can be discussed at enrolment. It is also important to note that eligibility criteria may

be subject to change, based on government changes.

How can I pay for my course? For courses lasting less than 15 weeks and any courses costing less than £200 (total of tuition and certification fees), you will be expected to pay in full when you enrol. You can pay by cash, cheque or card. For courses lasting at least 15 weeks and costing £200 or more, you can sign up for our instalment payment plan – please see ‘Spreading the Cost’. If your employer, sponsor, Student Loan company or managing agent has agreed to pay for your course, you will need to bring confirmation from them.

Spreading the cost Payment in instalments is available for courses costing over £200 that last longer than 15 weeks. ■ For course fees below £400, a deposit at enrolment of £100 is followed by three equal instalments during the course. ■ For course fees above £400, a deposit at enrolment of 25% is followed by three equal instalments during the course. ■ The instalment payments can be taken either on a credit or debit card that will still be in date on the third instalment payment date. Or alternatively you may pay by Direct Debit. If you would like to pay by instalments, you will need to complete the fee payment form during enrolment. The forms will be available from Student Central.

How much do you pay? Our courses have three fee bands: A, B or C. Please see below to find out which band is relevant to you.

Fee A I am aged 16-18

I am on benefits but not JSA or ESA (WRAG)

For courses that you gain a qualification from, tuition and certification fees are usually free if you are 16-18 (on or before the 31st August 2016) this may vary depending on the qualification. However you will be required to pay for all materials and any re-sits, along with exam fees if you fail to attend or withdraw.

The course will be free if you are currently unemployed, have the right to work in the UK and are wanting to enrol on the course to enter employment. Also if you are in receipt of one of the benefits: Council Tax Benefit, Universal Credit, Housing Benefit, Income Support, Working Tax Credit, Employment Support Allowance (ESA not in the Work Related Activity Group) or you are an Asylum Seeker in receipt of an income based benefit. Evidence of your benefits will be required e.g. award notice or official letter.

Some courses are not funded by our funding bodies for example all leisure / hobby courses where you do not obtain a qualification, will require payment of the full amount stated in Fee A. Exemption from fees may not apply if you are still in full-time education or if you have been living outside of the UK within the last three years. Call 01424 458475 for more information.

I am enrolling for a GCSE Maths/English course GCSE courses are free if you don’t already have a grade A-C in English and Maths, and you are over the age of 16.

I am aged 19-23 and it’s my first full Level 2 qualification* Level 2 fees are waived if it is your first Level 2 course. This may be different for learners studying a course in the workplace.

I am aged 19-23 and it’s my first Full Level 3 or 4 qualification* Level 3 fees are waived if it is your first Level 3 or higher course. This may be different for learners studying a course in the workplace.

I am on JSA or ESA (WRAG) If you are on Job Seeker’s Allowance, (including JSA National Credit only or Employment and Support Allowance in the Work Related Activity Group for skills training) you are entitled to free tuition and certification fees, in order to help you get into work (not applicable to full cost courses). Additional fees may still be payable. Evidence of benefit will be required, e.g. award notice or official letter stating the type of benefit you are receiving. A Jobseekers card is NOT acceptable evidence. You will need to provide your National Insurance number. If you are a dependant of a claimant but not part of a joint claim you are not automatically eligible for full remission but may be eligible under other criteria (see below).

* The qualification must also be on the Government’s Legal

Entitlement List. Most courses are on the list, however, please contact the College to see if you are affected by this.

Fee B Cost of the course for those not in band A or C If there is only one fee stated or you do not meet Fee A or C, you will have to pay this amount.

Fee C Full cost If you are aged 19+ there is no longer any fee remission or subsidy for studying a Level 3 or 4 course. You, an employer or sponsor will be required to pay the full fee, this may be paid by instalment plan if the course lasts at least 15 weeks and costs £200 or more.  However, you may be eligible to take advantage of an Advanced Learner Loan. Please see how to apply for the Advance Learner Loan at gov.uk/advancedlearnerloan.

International student or just moved back to the UK? If you have lived outside the UK or you are an international student, your fee will vary from those listed with the courses. Please contact our Student Advisers on 01424 458475 for more information.

Refunds Where the College cancels a course prior to its start date or alters the location or time, such that a student cannot attend, a full refund will be made. If a student needs to cancel their course, and does so in writing to Student Services 14 working days before the course start date, we will make a full refund minus an administration charge as detailed in the Tuition Fee Policy. If an individual or employer cancels less than 14 working days before the start of the course then the College operates a ‘no refund policy’. If a refund is requested on the grounds of quality, this should be sent in the first instance to the Quality Department at quality@sussexcoast.ac.uk. Please refer to the refund policy that can be made available for you on request. The rules on fees and funding are complex and potential students are encouraged to contact the Student Adviser team to discuss their particular circumstances on 01424 458475.

How could Advanced Learning Loans help you? If you are 19 or over and want to study a Level 3 to 6 course, you maybe eligible for an Advanced Learner Loan. These loans are straight forward and will cover the cost of your course (fee C). These loans are similar to university tuition loans, introduced by the government to support students who want to further their education or even go on to university. Loan eligibility doesn’t depend on your income and there are no credit checks.

Students will therefore have the option to either: ■ Pay all of the course fees themselves ■ Have an employer/sponsor pay the course fees for them ■ Apply for an Advanced Learning Loan to help pay for the course tuition fees

To qualify you will need to be: ■ Aged 19 and above at the start of the course ■ Enrolling on an eligible course at Level 3 to 6 (Level 3 or 4 only if your course begins before 1 August 2016) which includes A-levels, Access to HE Diplomas and other Vocational Qualifications. ■ A resident in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of the course ■ Studying with college in England

How many loans can I get? You can have up to a maximum of four Advanced Learner Loans in total: •

If you started your course before 1 August 2016, you can only take out one loan at a time for non A-Level courses and you can’t get a second loan for a course of the same type and level as the one you’ve already completed.

If you start your course on or after 1 August 2016, you can apply for up to four loans at the same time for courses of any eligible type and level. You should speak to your college or provider to check that the combinations you would like to study will benefit you and lead to progression.

For A-Levels you can apply for a loan to fund each course you take towards your A-Levels - up to a maximum of 4 A-Levels. This means you can have up to 8 loans at once if you’re taking each A-Level as 2 separate courses. The courses must be in the same subject to qualify for a full A-Level.

What courses will it cover? The minimum loan amount is £300. Therefore any level 3 to 6 course that is over £300 could be eligible for a Advanced Learner Loan. Please note that these loans do not cover Degrees or other forms of Higher Education (HE). For information on funding for HE go to gov.uk/student-finance.

12

Applying is easy Apply online or download an application form at gov.uk/advancedlearnerloan. You can take out a loan for the maximum amount to cover your fee or you can pay all or part of the fee yourself. The loan is available irrespective of your current employment status and the loan will not be means tested or subject to any credit check. Once you have applied for the loan you don’t need to do anything to pay the course fee – the loan will be paid directly to the college on your behalf.

Repaying the loan Repayments are straight forward - your monthly repayments will be based on your income, not what you borrowed. You’ll be due to start repaying your loan in the April after you leave or finish your course – whichever comes first. You will pay back your loan (plus interest) when you finish your course and earning more than £21,000 a year. Your repayments will stop if your income drops below £21,000 a year. You pay interest until you pay your loan back in full. Your monthly repayment amount will be 9% of any income you earn over £21,000. For example: If you earn £22,000 a year - you will pay £7 a month If you earn £25,000 a year - you will pay £30 a month Making repayments If you’re an employee, your employer will work out your repayments and take them out of your salary with your tax. If you’re self employed, you make repayments as part of your self assessment tax return. You can pay some or all of your loan at any time without an extra charge.

Leaving or changing your course? You will have to pay back any money (plus interest) that has been paid to your college or training provider if you leave or change your course after two weeks. You will need to speak to one of our Student Advisers to see if they can transfer the loan to another course.


“Applying for the Advanced Learner Loan was easy and I have had help with my childcare too. It has given me more than any financial gain, it has given me my life back whilst enabling me to still be a great mum to my girls.” Grace Isted, Beauty Therapy student

Access to HE Courses If you’re undertaking an Access to HE Diploma and then go on to complete an HE qualification, the outstanding balance of your Advanced Learner Loan will be written off. You can only get one Advanced Learner Loan to fund an Access to HE course. To qualify for this write off you must fully complete both your Access to Higher Education and Higher Education course at university. The HE course doesn’t need to relate to the Access to HE course you complete. The HE course must be eligible for funding by Student Finance England.

More information? Talk to one of our student advisors on 01424 458475 or read more at www.gov.uk/advanced-learner-loan.

Our skills strategy and local businesses We are committed to working with businesses and getting people into the workplace, into careers that they enjoy. We are developing a skills strategy to fulfil the Hastings and Rother local skills demand, by offering informative first class education from non-accredited learning through to Higher Education and employment. We would like to work with businesses, targeting four key areas, that will generate value for both business and employee:

Work placements and visits

Training your existing staff

This year, the college has 1,700 16-18 year old students who are seeking work placements as part of their Employability and Work Skills programmes. Placements give young people a real taste of work and improve employability.

The college works with businesses to provide immediate, bespoke and flexible training to optimise productivity. We can provide a tailored set of accredited qualifications, along with coaching and specific workshops, to enhance the performance of your company’s workforce.

Businesses can offer students the opportunity to visit their premises, come into college to talk about their business, and the sector they work in. This will inspire our learners and give them an enriched understanding of the skills that businesses are looking for. Please contact the Work Experience team on 01424 458580 or at kchristmas@sussexcoast.ac.uk

Apprenticeships Apprenticeships are one of the fastest-growing ways of increasing capabilities in the workplace. Heavily supported by central government, they are an affordable way to gain an employee and support young people as they take their first steps into work. If you think your business would benefit from taking on an apprentice, contact the Apprenticeship Team on 01424 458317 or at apprenticeships@sussexcoast.ac.uk.

“I want the college to be seen by businesses as a vital part of the formula for growth. I am extending an open invitation to employers to help us direct our resources to meet their specific training needs. In some cases, we will even be able to work with business partners to develop new accredited qualifications.“

14 14

For example, we have recently worked with over 15 local engineering and manufacturing companies to develop a short vacuum course that has enabled all of their employees to expand their theoretical knowledge and improve sales as a result. We have government funding available to help your business develop and grow so please contact us to discuss your bespoke requirements on 01424 458570 or email us at businessandcommunity@sussexcoast.ac.uk.

Training your future workforce If your business is looking to recruit, then we have a vast pool of work-ready people for you to tap in to. Working in partnership with employers and the Job Centre Plus, we design short and intensive, accredited pathways for local unemployed people, giving them the confidence and skills they need to fill local job vacancies. Our Inside Track programme trains local people for you to interview, trial or directly employ. We can provide you with a cost-effective recruitment process and support unemployed people get back into work. Successful partnerships have generated jobs for people at Prime Care, Pets at Home and Dunelm Mill. For a tailored programme, specific to your needs, contact our Business Development team on 01424 458570 or businessandcommunity@sussexcoast.ac.uk

Contact Dan Shelley (left), Vice Principal for Enterprise, Employment and Skills, to discuss the development of our Skills Strategy: dshelley@sussexcoast.ac.uk.

Community Learning brings together groups of adults, often of different ages and backgrounds, by helping them to pursue their interests. We aim to help local people develop new skills, address a need, become healthier or learn how better to support their children. We work closely with our partners, Claverham Community College and Education Futures Trust, in

meeting the needs of the community.

The key areas of focus for our Community Learning provision are: ■ To maximise access to Community Learning for all adults, bringing new opportunities and improving lives. ■ To promote social renewal by bringing local communities together to experience the joy of learning and the pride that comes with achievement. ■ To help maximise the effect Community Learning has on the social and economic well-being of individuals, families and communities. We are also members of the Hastings and Rother Adult and Community Learning Forum.

Meet our partners Claverham adult education Claverham Community College has been the main provider of adult education in Battle for over 20 years.

Meet our students Be inspired by our students stories from past and present, and how their courses helped them.

“Doing this course has completely changed my life. If I ever had any issues, the college couldn’t do enough to resolve them. I took out a 24+ loan to study and it was paid straight to the college with no hassle. I was able to get help with my childcare too. The course has given me more than any financial gain, it has given me my life back whilst enabling me to continue to be a great mum to my girls.” Grace has a 5-year plan, hoping to continue her Level 3, specialising in skin care, then gain experience for a year before going freelance and opening her own salon. Grace Isted, Level 3 Beauty student

“I chose to study at Sussex Coast College as the engineering department had an excellent reputation and the course suited my needs. SCCH is a very ‘hands on’ college, especially at the Ore campus, where you are given the opportunity to use industrial equipment and machinery without being restricted due to it being an educational establishment. It really gives you the experience of ‘real’ welding, due to the workshop environment, and totally prepares you for the world of work.’ ‘I enjoy studying here because there are industrial standard facilities and the staff are knowledgeable. The course fits around work perfectly as it is in the evenings.” Rod Nelson, part-time Welding student

“Sussex Coast College Hastings is a modern building with an abundance of resources for students to learn. As an outsider I had a very limited knowledge of the facilities available, but as a student I have had a great opportunity to access everything the college has to offer, which supported my intellectual and social ability. The college is very near the town; a group trip to the Old Town with my teachers explored historical places of interest, which I was unaware of.” Mahdy Al Gaaly is a mature Egyptian-born British student, studying ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) at Sussex Coast College Hastings. Mahdy Al Gaaly, ESOL student

“I worked as a part-time welder when I came back to college to gain qualifications in machine shop skills. I was inspired to progress on to the BTEC Level 3 National Certificate in Engineering. I discovered a true passion for engineering and found the confidence I needed to be myself, instead of being what others expected. I am very happy to be unconventional! I went on to study the HND in Mechanical Engineering and won a regional award for Outstanding Progression to Higher Education. I am now teaching Engineering at Sussex Coast College Hastings.” Debbie Attewell, Level 4 Engineering student


“I studied TAQA and PGCE Cert Ed part-time in order to gain my teaching qualifications. Part-time studying meant I could continue to work, whilst learning at the same time. I found the course at SCCH to be of a very high standard, with tutors who understood my needs. I am now a fully qualified teacher, employed by the college. Thanks to my part-time course, I am able to give my students a high standard of learning. Studying part-time has given me confidence in my abilities and made me curious as to what I will learn next…” Rob Donachie, PGCE student

“Once I was enrolled I was even more nervous, sitting in a room full of intelligent youngsters who were used to being in education. Then there is me, who has been out of it for a long time. I soon proved to myself that I was capable of taking information in and putting assignments together. When I received my first Distinction, I cried with happiness and through it I gained confidence, which is something I’ve always lacked. I have learnt so much whilst on this course and had some brilliant experiences, both in and outside the classroom. This includes a range of placements which have helped steer my career decisions in the right direction.” Stella Cowell, Level 3 Health and Social Care student

“I have learnt so much on my course, starting with the roles of working overseas, cruises, business travel, geography, and attractions around the world. I also learnt key skills in marketing, global distribution services, selling skills, customer service skills, and teamwork. In fact, as I’m writing this I can hardly believe how much I have actually achieved! I have been to Gatwick airport both landside and airside and experienced the World Travel Market, which is the most prestigious travel event of the year, all thanks to SCCH. This year I have to plan my own travel event and undertake some very difficult exams but I know I will achieve my goals. In fact, what used to scare me now excites me.” Melanie Sherry, Travel and Tourism student

“It is hard to know what you want to do with your life when you are 16 years old; I just decided to go with the flow. I always wanted to be a hairdresser, but I was persuaded not to by my family. Now I have finally decided to follow my dream career. Studying at SCCH was an easy decision. The location is perfect for me and I love the facilities. It is also a Wella College of Excellence which made it a clear choice for me. I was extremely worried that I would be the only adult on the course, but I couldn’t be more wrong. At least half of the class are adults, allowing us to learn from each other. We all get on really well and there is a great atmosphere.” Emma Heritage, Level 3 Hairdressing student
